Description

Koulourakia, or Greek Easter Cookies, are a family favorite! Koulourakia are similar to a shortbread, but not as sweet, and are traditionally made at Eastertime. Easy and delicious, try these for your dessert table for Easter Sunday!

Ingredients

  • ¾ pounds Butter
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 3 whole Eggs, Divided
  • ⅛ cups Milk
  • ½ cups Orange Juice
  • 4 cups Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 2 Tablespoons Water
  • ¼ cups Sesame Seeds (optional)

Preparation

Heat oven to 350ºF.

Cream butter, sugar and vanilla. Add 2 eggs and blend well. Add milk and orange juice and beat on high for about 3 to 4 minutes.

Sift flour, baking powder and baking soda. Add flour to butter mixture and beat well until a soft dough is formed (add a bit more flour if needed, until dough is no longer sticky but soft).

Pinch off 1-inch balls of dough and shape into a 6-inch long rope. Braid the two ends together and place 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet.

Beat remaining egg with 2 tablespoons of water. Brush each cookie with egg wash. You may sprinkle with sesame seeds at this point, if desired.

Bake at 350ºF for 10–12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on rack. These store and freeze well, just place in freezer bags or containers.

Makes 4 dozen.
